The double adjustable Strange shocks will have 2 knobs. The plastic knob is for the extension (rebound) and the metal knob adjusts compression (bump). Clockwise will stiffen the shock [...]
You should be able to achieve 950-1200 psi on the rear brakes and 700-800 psi on the front brakes. Usually, more brake pressure is used for the rear brakes, since in most drag racing applications, the rear tire has a much larger contact surface (with the pavement), when compared with the front tire; however, builder [...]

The “F” dimension on the Strange axle order form is the measurement from the outside of the housing end (the face of the housing end, where the retainer plate would contact) to the outside of the axle flange, where the inside of the drum or the inside of the “hat” of the disc would contact [...]
The case hardness on the splined portion of an induction hardened axle is measured from the root of the tooth when it is originally heat treated. Once the axle is cut and re-splined the case hardness will not be as deep where the spline is. This makes that area of the axle in effect weaker.
